  1. Keep it short, simple and easy to read

    • We know you are probably sick of typing at this stage in your university career, do not worry, we like our applications short, simple and straight to the point

    • The ideal candidate section of the application is the perfect moment for you to shine and truly show off your achievements
  1. Be passionate about your research topic

    • Are you passionate about a certain sector of PR? Is there a topic you think is worth exploring? Chances are PRIME has a big bank of data you can use to dig for insights
    • Previous topics such as; Autonomous driving, 2012 banking crisis, reputation management of BP have all helped guide practitioners in the field
    • Think about how your research will benefit the PR industry as a whole
  1. Proof read

    • Once you have completed your application, print it off and have a quick read over for potential errors
    • Read your application aloud, you can hear and/or pick up mistakes in grammar, punctuation and meaning
